6-panel brochure (3 panels on each side) for the Vessels of Satire: The Art of Magdalena and Michael Frimkess exhibition, at Louis Stern Fine Arts, Oct 28, 2000–Jan 6, 2001. 3 images. One panel offers a summary of the work.

Michael Frimkess (b. 1937) and Magdalena Suarez Frimkess (b. 1929) began working together shortly after they met in 1963. Their fifty-year collaboration constitutes a compelling body of work that snags itself on many genres—pottery, outsider art, mythology, pop—all of which fail to quantify its beautiful urgency and unique renewal of the ceramic tradition.

Measures 9.25×5.75 folded. Measures 17.25×9.25 unfolded.
